Designing with Wadawurrung: Geelong Arts Centre

Thursday 19 October

Designing with Wadawurrung will examine the incorporation of First Peoples’ knowledge and culture into the design of the new Geelong Arts Centre.

This panel discussion will look at the process involved in working meaningfully with Traditional Owners and how this consultation has been translated into the design of the Geelong Arts Centre through the inclusion of Wadawurrung stories and culture and First Nations artworks. ARM Principal Jeremy Stewart will join the panel.
